Question about Bernina BERNETTE 65 Mechanical Sewing Machine
If the bobbin thread is coming up to the top, then the thread is not under tension correctly. I think that this is a top loading bobbin so the bobbin will go into the bobbin holder, then you pull the thread back and press it into a tension device - should hear it click into tension. Now pull the thread back towards you and it should not come out of the tension. The bobbin should turn anticlockwise as the thread is pulled from it.
These bobbin holders usually will have a small adjustment dial on them and it should have the standard setting marked in red. It is very unusual that you would need to change this but check that it hasn't been messed with perhaps. If you have the machine manual check where they say the dial should be set. More likely that the thread is just not into tension fully or at all.
The manual may give you other troubleshooting tips too.
A good resouce is www.sewing.about.com for general machine tips, cleaning and threading issues.
Hope this helps.
